Navis, a provider of operational technologies and services that will improve performance and efficiency for leading organizations across the global shipping industry, announced that it will leverage the solutions offered by two startups: Navis collaborates with i4sea and Teqplay, as part of the Navis Smart Suite offering, specifically enhancing Navis’ capabilities to deliver port call planning and terminal operators optimization.
The Memorandum of Understanding to explore this relationship is part of a successful joint venture completed in the Rainmaking Trade & Transport Impact Program in the fall of 2019, which brought together global start-ups and corporations to address major maritime, trade and transport challenges.
i4sea’s product i4cast® provides highly accurate forecast data on weather, ocean and vessel dynamics related restrictions for any port call that enables higher and safer use of berths and sea passages.
Teqplay provides port call event tracking and visibility solutions, including higher level ETA information, making it easier to plan and communicate with relevant stakeholders around a port call. Both solutions provide clear complementary features for the Navis Berth Window Management, a cloud-based product that enables terminal operators to better plan and optimize their berth utilization in an intuitive and easy manner.
